This style was published with an 1891 title page (earlier) and an 1892 title page (later). With the exception of the date on the title page, there is nothing that distinguished to editions. This fort was published until 1897 although no title page date later than 1892 has been seen.

1891 editions



1892 editions


Format 3


Here is a one page flyer which advertises the first two formats of this title. The advertisement is not dated but the $3.00 first format book was not published after 1897 so this flyer dates between 1891-1897. This piece is the same size and is quite similar to the flyers that advertise the Dore Masterpieces and Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress.
